Just lately mummy has been very busy at work and has been using the laptop of an evening to continue working, which means while she’s hogging it, I’m getting behind in visiting everyone’s bloggies. Hopefully after today (her big deadline) things should calm down and I will be able to visit you all again and reply to your comments un-hindered.

I’ve been able to sneak on for a few minutes so would like to say a big thank you to Emma at My GBGV Life for passing me the Lovely Blog award. This is the second time I’ve been nominated for it, but the first time I cheated and offered to everyone, and I suspect no one took it. So this time I’d like to do it properly, or at least some of it properly:

I’m supposed to tell you 7 things about myself, but I’m fairly sure there’s nothing you don’t know, so I’ll skip that bit.

I’d like to pass this award on to:

Mollie and Alfie


Zena aka Princess Tails

Prince Caspian aka First Puppy

Hey…its Jet here


RA Husky

If you don’t already read their blogs, please pop by and say hello!

My second piece of news is that my story won the Hutch a Good Life story competition!!! This is a picture they created of me and Basil – how cute!:

The version of the story I submitted was a shortened one as I had got a little carried away and went waaaay over the wordcount, so if you are interested to reading the full one, I’ll aim to post it at some point. In the meantime you can read the abridged version over on the little piggies bloggy.

A note to Doggy, Easy and MollieΒ  – hope you don’t mind my including you in my story, you’ll all receive royalties but as the competition was held by guinea pigs, you’ll likely get a carrot each πŸ™‚
